Very solid movie player. Probably the best freeware player I've seen - well-designed and everything works as you'd expect it to.

Nearly worthless - crashes repeatedly on simple operations. I downloaded it to be able to rotate a video shot on a still camera. While I can rotate the clip, I haven't been able to export anything useful (MPEG4, AVI) from it. Even opening the saved plist from the rotation operation causes BitPlayer to crash. I will have to keep looking...

Nice player, very friendly interface. I liked it as an easy reliable player for Tiger but it isn't as stable in Leopard and Snow Leopard. Wish the developers had stayed with this program.

I just tried it on OSX 10.6.6 and it crashed when I tried to export.

Freakin awesome. The VLC for the rest of us. :) It sports many of the features that VLC does, with a much more friendly UI and better QuickTime integration.

Thank you for making this program. The only add-on that Quicktime does not have, is the ability to make playlists. This program has it!

Added note - the only thing missing to this program is an equalizer. Get that installed and it'd be perfect.

This is a must have program for running multiple Quicktime movies simultaneously (one right after another) thus elimating any Quicktime editing programs. Now I can listen and watch my favorite Quicktime Music Videos without bearing the burden of having to do any editing. Great job!

I either did something wrong or simply lack sufficient hardware for this app. On a 500 Mhz G4 with 768 MB with nothing else running BitPlayer managed 10-20 frames per *minute* and no sound. With 2 instances of mencoder gobbling RAM and CPU time in the background VLC, MPlayer and QuickTime Player could all handle the same files with no trouble. These were all .avi files encoded with various encoders - ffmpeg, mencoder, and unknown Windows hosted apps.

BitPlayer is on my "shortlist" of must-have apps. Very user friendly and rightly belong in the Mac world. Fullscreen and playlist is the one-two punch of BitPlayer. Thanks-a-lot.

I use this as a presentation solution because of its dual screen support: notes on the PowerBook, slides, movies on the data projector. Simpler and cleaner than PowerPoint.

Bit Player is just indispensable to open the (quite many) files that VLC and MacPlayer open but cannot read (not mentionning the famously unsuccessful reader : Apple's QT).

No problem viewing, but it does not export. I ran export on a QT.mov to mpeg2 overnight and all I ended up with was a 0kb file on the desktop. The export function was still running, but not registering any progress in the export. Anyone else have this problem? Anyone have a solution to troubleshoot it?

A great little app to playback clips. Fullscreen, audio controls, and a good GUI are what's great about this player. Not to mention the program is free. Two thumbs up, way up. Thanks.

Someone compared it to VLC. VLC is the only player for DVD's other than Apple's spartan job.

I don't know wtf you people are talking about because I can't get this to view any movie even halfway as decently as mPlayer does. But I gave it a three for value...it is free even if it is a pos.

I don't care if Anonymous is the developer, (s)he's absolutely correct! This is the best movie player I've used yet, far exceeding VLC, mPlayer, and even QuickTime. Anything that can handle AVIs without converting gets an A in my book!

Just what I was looking for, an iPhoto-like app but for Quicktime movies. I'm surprised Apple didn't make something like this yet. An A+

Great app for the masses. The change of name is questionable. You might want to darken the icon for better viewing under poor conditions. Overall, mucho thanks.

A really great player, seems to have slightly better picture quality that mPlayer2 in fullscreen mode. But overall both players work very well. Only thing is that sometimes video will pixelate for a few seconds when switching applications.
